To my friends and the friends of Round Earth,
As you know, many of the journalists who bring us our international news and information are freelancers these days. Freelancers like James Foley (photo left) who was killed by ISIS in Syria in August 2014. Freelancers who personally absorb the risk of their jobs, working without regular salaries — even without health insurance and medivac coverage.
Round Earth Advisory Board Member Mike Hartung is leading our efforts to work with like-minded organizations with the goal of attracting interest from insurers who could offer enhanced coverage for global freelancers at competitive prices.
